This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Ain't Life Sweet - Scrap Africa Sketch no.50

Hello Everyone

There is a super sketch challenge up at Scrap Africa.

Here is the sketch.

I had so much fun with this sketch and was so thrilled with the way my page turned out.

I used the Forever Young Collection from BoBunny. I just love the fresh colours.

The chippies are Blue Fern Studios pieces.  The circle I heat embossed and the swirls I just colour inked and then highlighted with white acrylic paint.

I had so much fun with the background, using the stickable stencils and gesso, along with stamps and watercolour and paints.

The photo is of my niece and was from a little photo shoot that we did last year.

I simply love this I think I really captured the freshness of youth and life, with the colours, styling and design!

Maybe you can find some scrappy time to play along with us.  You have until 14 May.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super Friday!
